Description

This dress makes me think of Betty Draper of Mad Men, even if I’m not even close to look like her (too bad!).

I didn’t line it, I wanted it to be light for summer (if such a thing will ever happen…). So I used facing instead for collar, sleeves and hem.
It’s shorter than the original. And the waist isn’t gathered but pleated.

I love my Betty Draper dress! :)

    It’s lovely – the fabric is beautiful, and it fits you perfectly – hope your Parisian summer arrives soon :)

      Thank you! I couldn’t agree more, can’t wait for summer, basically we had no spring :-/

    Gorgeous and I love the pleated skirt much more than the gathered original.

      Thanks Shannon! Yes, I used the Burda pattern “Swing Dress”. I mentioned it when I added the project but it didn’t appear, don’t know why. Now you can see the link to the pattern on the right :)
